Technology is amazing. We can utilise the tech tools available to us these days in remarkable ways.

I am currently sitting in a train listening to music on my Zen while writing this blog post on my tablet PC using a digital pen.

I have just finished reviewing notes for a client workshop I am heading into the city to. First I opened my email & opened some excel files to review some settings & details we are going to be discussing. Second I copied the meeting agenda to One Note so I will be able to make notes as we go in the workshop. Third I printed my quote for the work to be done from a PDF attached to an email to OneNote so I can easily refer to it in the meeting. Finally I opened Windows Live Writer to compose this blog post. It will get published as soon as I get back online.

My Mobile Phone is able to send short messages and contact me immediately with people. While I was driving to the station I asked my secretary to book my lunch restaurant appointment for me.

As I was discussing with a friend on Sunday, what an amazing thing technology is, and how much we take it for granted. None of the above things could have been done 25 years ago!
